Boring blog = happy children

Jon and Kate Gosselin are getting a divorce (unless it’s the most brilliant publicity stunt ever to boost ratings) and instead of blogging about it, I played Apples to Apples with my kids. President Obama shot his mouth off about a white policeman arresting a black professor, sparking an endless debate among bloggers and pundits, […]

Celebrity culture

Yesterday I was writing about Mark Sanford when practically everyone else in the world was writing, talking and at times crying about Michael Jackson. I wonder what infinitesimal percentage of Americans is like me in finding politicians more interesting than celebrities.

A Nanny for Octomom — and the rest of us, too

My blog continues to get more hits from people Googling things like “I hate Kate Gosselin SO much” and “Kate Gosselin crazy bitch” than from anything else, and as a result, a post I wrote last year called Hate Kate continues to garner comments.

The lazy shrew and the breeder pig

Last year there was a discussion on an e-mail list I’m on about the Duggars, the notoriously large family of 17 (soon to be 18) children.
